For a special night out choose the Takaski. A little more expensive than a regular family eating place but certainly someplace to celebrate straight A's, or Sweet 16th birthday. The food is tremendous and the service tip worthy!

As always the best selection of innovative and traditional rolls made from the freshest high quality ingredients and fish. Try the TNT Roll or sit at the Sushi bar and leave yourself in the hands of the very talented and intuitive Sushi chefs.

I agree with all of the foregoing. The place is too lively, active, and hip to have a little kid just sit there and crayon. That said, the waiters are all friendly and helpful so you won't get any negative stares, I don't... More

Best bet is to get there early. I tried to go back second night as a single to sit at sushi bar, madness. 50 Minute wait for sushi bar, 90 minutes for table. But worth the wait! Awesome
